Sometimes we hold on to hurt without communicating the nature of hurts to others.
They often aren’t even aware they have offended us. When we stuff our feelings eventually, the stuffing is going to come out.
That’s because when you fill anything with pressure, it will explode. In the same way, the outburst in our hearts can result in broken marriages and relationships, especially our relationship with God.
Some are shocked to find out that we have been keeping score of their wrongdoings against us.
Give people a chance to state their case and learn to forgive. Don’t stuff your feelings. Express them, forgive and release others to Jesus – the One, who displayed to us with His precious blood how mercy triumphs over judgment.
